The Fast and the Furious series has gone from strength to strength in recent years.

With each instalment, the action has become more bombastic. The scripts have grown extremely cringeworthy and the whole thing has become so unbelievable, the series is beginning to make the Harry Potter films look like a Werner Herzog documentary in comparison.

And yet, I can’t get enough of them! Judging from this trailer, Fast and Furious 7 (simply called Furious 7 over in the States) looks set to include more unbelievable mayhem from everyone’s favourite supercar obsessed “family”.

It’s got everything. Gravity defying stunts? Check. An airplane? Check. The Rock with a gatling gun? Check. Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto harping on about the “family”? Check. Jason Statham doing his thing? Check.

Starring series regulars Vin Diesel, the late Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black, Fast and Furious 7 also features Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey, Nathalie Emmanuel and Kurt Russell.

The film is set to race onto our screens next April.
